21st Century and still Poverty?

Hare Krishna to all

 

We human wonders sometimes is that Lord have given us beautiful planet with all the fruits on the trees and all the Vegetables to eat so why there is hunger? 

 

Why there are people who have nothing to live and other have more then any human wish for?

Who is a Real Guru?

A real Guru is one who is born from time to time as a repository of spiritual force which he transmits to future generations through successive links of Guru and Shishya (disciple). 



The current of this spirit-force changes its course from time to time, just as a mighty stream of water opens up a new channel and leaves the old one for good. 



Thus it is seen that old sects of religion grow lifeless in the course of time, and new sects arise with the fire…

The power of Prabhupada and the Hare Krsna mantra...

In one small city in Spain I walked over to a man sitting in the driver’s seat of a parked car and handed him a copy of The Science of Self-Realization. As he looked at the beautiful photograph of Srila Prabhupada on the cover, I spoke to him about the book and about the chanting of Hare Krsna.…

Thought Of The Day

The real goal should be how can I make spiritual advancement. Just like when you are sick with fever, every few minutes you touch your forehead, you want to know is my fever going down or not. Similarly we should examine, is my material fever going down or not.

Srila Prabhupada quotes on Ekadasi

To observe Ekadasi-vrata and Dvadasi-vrata means to please the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Those interested in advancing in krsna consciousness must observe ekadasi-vrata regularly.



SB 4.28.35-36

We can definitely see that to advance in Krsna consciousness one must control his bodily weight. If one becomes too fat, it is to be assumed that he is not advancing spiritually. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura severely criticized his fat disciples. The idea is that…

Only a Krsna Conscious person is peaceful

A person who is not disturbed by the incessant flow of desires — that

enter like rivers into the ocean, which is ever being filled but is

always still — can alone achieve peace, and not the man who strives to

satisfy such desires.

Although the vast ocean is always filled with water, it is always,

Where is the difficulty?

So where is the difficulty to understand God? There is no difficulty. If actually one is sane man, if he has got some brain substance, not stool substance, then he can understand God in every step, every step. Every step. Raso 'ham apsu kaunteya prabhasmi sasi-suryayoh sabdah khe... Everything is explained there. Why they speak lies, that "I have not seen God." Why don't you see God as God directs you to see? Why do you manufacture your own way? You cannot see God by your…

A Lesson from the Geese

Have you ever wondered why migrating geese fly in a 'V' formation? As with most animal behavior, God had a good reason for including that in their instincts. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird following. In a V formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% more flying range than if each bird flew alone. 



Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone…and quickly gets back into formation. Like geese……… Continue

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - How shall i serve you

How shall i serve you



Even in ISKCON's early days, Prabhupada had intimated that he preferred to hand over the management of his Society to his senior men. By doing this he could be free to finish translating the Srimad-Bhagavatam.



Nevertheless, Prabhupada's day-to-day letters from his disciples were still filled with questions that could be quite competently…

Krishna's Smile - Always Gives Him Away

One cool autumn evening, Radha and Her sakhis gathered in raasa bhoomi to meet Krishna. Govinda also arrived followed by some of His dearest sakhaas. Krishna was eager to perform the raasa dance and hoped that the gopis would be agreeable; however, Radhika decided She did not wish to perform raasaleela on that day, but instead wanted to play hide and seek! Govinda gently suggested that perhaps hide and seek was not a good game to play in raasa bhoomi, as it was an open space and there was no… Continue
